About the Property
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)
The small home features luxury linens, free wi-fi, full, efficient, well appointed kitchen, washer, dryer, outdoor deck and fenced yards, front and back.
New ice skating rink in winter just a five to ten minute walk upstream.
This charming home is walking distance to Bend's downtown through the lovely Drake Park that hugs the eastern bank of the Deschutes River.
Our cottage is just under 900 square feet, so it is the definition of cozy. We have tried to keep it homey and traditional with quality touches. A lovely gas fire heats the main living areas of this cottage. The bedrooms and bathroom have their own quiet wall heaters.
The high thread count linens of pure cotton; down, and down alternative pillows outfit the bedrooms. Down alternative duvets will keep you warm on chilly nights.
Walk to many of the micro-breweries Bend is also so famous for. Being on the west side, there are many small restaurants featuring delicious local food and produce.
For those who want to stay in, besides the television, there are a variety of DVD's and videos to chose from to watch on the 42 inch screen. We also have a selection of books. An AM/FM radio and Ipod doc is also available.
The West side of Bend is also very close to Century Drive, the road to Mt. Bachelor, home to winter recreation. Skiing, snowboarding, cross country skiing and skating as well as snow tubing available through the winter and usually until the end of May! Ice skating is also available just a few minutes walk up river at the new ice skating rink (winter only). Between the cottage and Century Drive are ski shops for all your recreational needs including rentals of skis, snowboards and snowshoes.
We have attended to all the details we have found so nice in vacation rentals we have enjoyed.
Many of our guests have told us they do not wish to give a review as not to 'spoil their special spot' or find their favorite vacation time has been taken. Also note that the winter rates are much lower and it is always a lovely view of the river and very cozy and warm with the radiant gas stove.
Come visit and enjoy as much of beautiful Central Oregon as you can. It's a recreational feast!

We want people to come and enjoy year 'round and not just for the summer as usually happens. So come and check out the winter here at the cottage too! The perfect location goes for accessibility to the mountains also....moreless

Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: We have lived in Bend since 1989. After we bought the house in 1999 we spent time and spare change remodeling it to face the river and update the plumbing and electrical systems. Our family of 4 then moved in for several years so we could remodel our dream home. We loved this peaceful place and know you will too.
Why the Owner Chose Old Bend, Bend, OR, USA:
We moved to Bend because we love to ski and love all the recreational activities Central Oregon offers. We bought this home because of it's location directly on the river, and it's old trees and natural beauty.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This cottage has everything! In the heart of Bend, on the river, yet on a quiet street, with a sweet little yard, dock and outdoor fireplace. You can walk to the best Shopping, Dining, Breweries and parks. The kitchen is very well equipped. The linens on the beds are high thread count cotton. We offer down and down alternative pillows and quilts. There are books, games, videos and DVDs and an i-pod dock/radio if you want to stay indoors. It is just so relaxing to sit and watch the river go by.
